We regret to announce that this year’s annual SPARTAN meeting is being condensed and converted to a virtual online format due to COVID-19-related travel and meeting size restrictions and concerns for safety.
A large part of SPARTAN’s mission is to train and encourage the next generation of Spondyloarthritis clinicians and researchers. We are in the process of creating the virtual program, focusing on trainees with an educational symposium and abstract presentations.
Our 2021 meeting is being scheduled for spring 2021 and will most likely return to Madison. All room reservations made for the annual meeting at the Madison Concourse hotel have been cancelled at our request.
We are grateful to you for your continued support, and in these trying times, your patience.
